School starts in two days.
When I put it that way, it actually appears to be as long as it feels. It’s my emotional truth.
It doesn’t help that some of my friends have kids that in another district and their kids have been in school since last week. They are all glowy and happy and … free looking.
I pressed up against Lemony the other day just to see if I could get a contact high. No dice. Although I may have felt her boob against my boob. I’m not saying it happened. It may have happened.
God, you probably think I’m a perv. Guilty.
I like to revel in other people’s suffering when I get like this. For instance, Harmy, who is so excited for the ending of the financial bloodletting that is private preschool, who is anticipating the freedom that entering the public school system promises, now SHE has no idea.
Like, kids have to be school ON TIME and they have to get picked up ON TIME and you have to make them lunch or else listen to them wail about not having enough time to eat when they buy hot lunch, or the tyranny of the PROFESSIONAL DAY which means NO SCHOOL and always comes on the heels of a THREE DAY WEEKEND thus turning it into a FOUR DAY WEEKEND or how the school day doesn’t even remotely resemble an actual WORKING DAY and she’s going to have to figure out what to do with her kids for that other THREE HOURS which will involve MONEY, or the DREAD PTA trying to ROPE YOU INTO A FUNDRAISING COMMITTEE or being a ROOM PARENT or the absolutely, positively worst thing in the world CHAPERONING A FIELD TRIP where you have to be responsible for OTHER PEOPLE’S KIDS.
I feel better already.
Anyway, I was pondering a new schedule, one that would involve less writing and more living but then I thought, no. I’ve been keeping this up for what, nine months now and I just need to buck up and get the hell down to the basement.
Plus, I’m no quitter, like Jason for instance.
This would be so much easier with my sexy assistant around but she’s in Nebraska. Hell.
Enough whining. Time to cut the crap.
Despite my limp attitude, I actually got a pretty nice haul today. Lonny did a little damage himself. He better take me out for dinner.
